Hey everyone! This is my transcription of Jojo Mayer's Performance spotlight solo. (So far, I just have the first of the solos. It's from 0:07-2:10) I'll be posting more as I finish them. After I finish I'll put them all into finale and share the pdf here.

I was lucky enough to meet him a week ago at a clinic where I go to college.

This was really fun and challenging! I'm sure there are a few minor mistakes, so if you see any I'd be happy to know! :)

Technique(s) / The 4 Paradiddle [The Exercise Pad Sessions]
« Last post by Frankie Azzariti on April 24, 2015, 03:41 AM »
Hey guys and welcome to another episode of The Pad Exercises Session :)
Right now we're going to focus on paradiddle. Gotta love those paradiddles. For who ever doesn't know what a paradiddle is, well shame on you... It is the most important rudiment of all. The granddad of em all let's say. In this video I'll explain how you play the paradiddle and why it was created; plus I'll explain all 4 variations too. At the end I'm going to give you one cool exercise that brings all 4 paradiddles together.

My first guess is that the device was dropped or received a blow that caused the needle to be misaligned or caused the backing to move so that the needle now rubs.

If you are desperate and have no other possible repair solutions (like sending it back to the manufacture to pay for repair), you could try CAREFULLY opening the device to examine more closely.

recently got my hands on a 2nd hand tension watch. It looks brand new - boxed and manuals everything. I didn't use it for a while, but on its first use I noticed that the needle it very tight. I have to push it to give me any type of reading. Thinking it was odd, I check how to use the watch on YouTube - the needles on their tension watches move fluidly to give small readings. I can't seem to get mine to achieve this, and figure it's actually damaged.

Has anyone found this or been able to fix it?

ebay purchase, so I could complain but y'know... may as well try to fix it as it seems very well looked after.

Thanks in advance.

I've been using an iPad as a loopstation with various fx apps.. It's early days but I thought I'd share :)

I love paradiddles too but this is not a paradiddle exercise. This is a Singles and doubles strokes exercise in a paradiddle pattern. Check it out.

The next exercise I'll post is about paradiddles so I hope you'll enjoy that video ;)
I practiced both single and double paradiddles on a regular basis. They were both used in a marching cadence we did in the Army Band.   ;)  As time went on I also used both around a set. It made great practice and I drove the other drummers nuts when I practiced on my own personal set while in the Army.
I also found triplets very useful on a set.  :)
Hey guys, here's another exercise I found on internet. Check it out, it's the Singles and Doubles in a Paradiddle pattern Exercise. I saw it first in a Travis Barker video. It's pretty cool

Let me know whatcha think guys. Any feedback would be appreciated

P.S. I'm working on the other feedbacks you guys gave me. Thanks again for that.
